HUSTONVILLE — Students at Hustonville Elementary School will get to sleep in a couple of extra mornings as the opening day of classes there has been postponed until Monday as efforts to address mold at the school continue.
Students at all other Lincoln County schools will report to classes Thursday morning as scheduled.
Industrial hygienists from two Kentucky firms were at the school this morning collecting air and surface samples that will be taken to an accredited laboratory later today for analysis. Results of that testing will be provided to the Lincoln County Board of Education at its regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the central office.
Board members met Tuesday night and decided to delay opening Hustonville Elementary to allow more time for cleanup and testing. The board rented 18 air scrubbers with HEPA filters that operated throughout the school from Saturday until the samples were collected this morning.
